Mercedes-Benz Unimog Brabus U 500 Black Edition

What? This is a Mercedes?

The ridiculous fact that this is a Mercedes belies the abilities of this vehicle. Tuned by the mad scientists at Brabus, the Unimog Black Edition is a combination of day-to-day recreation and utility in addition to over the top “cost is no objective” satisfaction.

This “thing” features:

  • COMAND DVD navigation with a 6.5″ LCD screen
  • CD Changer
  • Aluminum Brightwork inside and out
  • Dual air conditioning
  • Tinted Glass
  • Sound system sourced from the S-Class
  • 6.8 Liter 280 horsepower engine
  • 12 Ton tow capacity (click thru the jump to see what we mean)
  • and 455×70 R24 (24 inches folks…) tires.

What this means to you: Yeah, sure, it’s the same price as a home but the look you’ll get when pulling upside some guy’s yellow Hummer will be well worth the price of admission.

Cost: $275,000 @ Brabus
